    City seeks donations and volunteers to restore historic Hangar 1

    The preservation and public use of the Tehachapi area's unique "transportation history" continues to be a priority among a group of dedicated volunteers. Much like the "Friends of the Depot," who tirelessly worked for years to successfully re-establish the landmark railroad depot at city center, the "Friends of the Airport" have embarked on several ventures intended to draw the local community and visitors to have access and utilize our city airport for special events. Aviator Park has already served our community for several organizational picnics and fly-in events. Last years' Warbird Fly-In, besides offering the public spectacular fly-bys and close up access to several rare aircraft, also featured an early morning 5k fun run -- on the runway! Dedicated runners and families pushing strollers all enjoyed a truly unique and rare experience before the arrival of the vintage airplanes.

    The upcoming 2nd annual Tehachapi Airport Fly-In and Display Day, to be held Saturday, Sept. 27, will provide insight into the possible plans to restore the first hangar built at the airport. Known as Hangar 1 and built in 1939 at the north end of Green Street, it has helped to establish our airport as an important air transportation link and vital alternative for transient pilots unable to land in the fog-shrouded San Joaquin Valley. Originally designated as "Kern County Airport No. 4," Tehachapi Municipal Airport has developed into a multi-use facility with critical capabilities that provide for timely medical evacuations and as a refueling center for fire-fighting aircraft. Additionally, nearby Mountain Valley Airport, known world-wide as a record-setting soaring center and as the sailplane training site for future test pilots and astronauts, completes the picture of the Tehachapi area as having key roles in local aerospace history.

    How to get refund on overpaid car sales tax

    Californians who want to know if they overpaid sales or use tax when buying a car or truck should verify their local tax rate (boe.ca.gov/taxrate) and review their vehicle registration paperwork carefully.

    Sales and use tax rates vary widely across California, and consumers may be unaware if they are being charged the correct amount of tax. When purchasing a motor vehicle, a buyer should generally pay the tax rate where it will be registered (usually the owner's home address).

    Although more passionately pleas were made at the Tehachapi Valley Recreation and Park District's regular board meeting held on Sept. 16, the Board of Directors announced that the Dye Natatorium Pool will definitely close for the upcoming winter season. Although many reasons were given for the pool closing for four months beginning Oct. 1, the primary reason given by board members was the lack of staffing, i.e. lifeguards.
